's start with the bloody conflict between israel and hamas in the middle east. israel's critics say they're doing more than defending themselves. there was a meeting to come up with a diplomatic solution. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that advances the security and legitimate aspirations of the israelis and palestinians alike. >> if there is a possibility of achieving a long-term solution of this problem through diplomatic means, we prefer that. if not, then i'm sure you understand israel will have to take whatever action is necessary to defend its people. >> i will borrow the opening question from the "washington post" columnist david ignatius. the question is, is there any escape from this palestinian version of heil? >> there is not. it goes back to what was said in the beginning, that critics have said that israel has turned got into a prison. we seem to not remember that seven years ago when israel left gaza. in front of the cameras of the world, at every soldier, every settlement, every jew left gaza, nothing left behind. israel declared gaza and an international frontier,
hillary clinton praised him for helping to broker the peace deal between hamas and israel and the administration issued the state department a tepid criticism. how tough should they get? should they say you have to pull back? what should our demands and leverage be? >> our leverage is not only substantial bayance and aid, plus an imf deal but the marshaling world public opinion is also against this kind of move by mr. morsi. we appreciate president morsi's action but in the past it's always been the united states that's brokered these deals and there's a clear perception amongst hamas that they won on this one. unfortunately the plo, abbas and others, have been diminished as a result of the negotiations and settlement reached. i predict hamas will continue to test the israelis and how far they can government finally let's trace it back to iran. where did the missiles come from? iran. where are the iranian revolutionary guard on the ground, irsyria. the centrifuge continues to spin in tehran. we've got to face up to what is one of the prime reasons there's the kind of unres
a problem on the outside. hamas is claiming they had great achievements. if they get back into a conflict with the israelis, there go those achievements. and the israelis obviously want to have calm as well. so i think all three sides have an interest in preserving this. there will be tests from time to time, that's a given. the fact that the iranians will try to get arms in there very quickly is also a given. i think the israelis will act to prevent that but i don't think it will break down the cease-fire. >> and then we have another situation that may be a sideshow in terms of the impact but we have a vote scheduled for thursday at the united nations where the palestinians are seeking some legitimacy, the other palestinians, the fatah wing, mahmoud abbas is coming to new york to have a vote in the general assembly which will be a largely symbolic vote on statehood, especially after hamas has flexed its muscles and said military and not diplomacy is the way to legitimacy internationally, it seems loom foolhardy on the part of the palestinians. >> first of all, what's going on, you're pre
on that tenuous cease-fire between israel and hamas, one writer sees a silent but influential force at work behind the scenes of this conflict. so let's talk with frieda. she's a world affairs columnist for "the miami herald" and a "world politics review." and an old friend from cnn. >> good to see you, marty. >> let's talk about the column you wrote for cnn.com. i believe it's called iran, an ominous lengthening shadow. and it basically goes over this conflict and talks about how what we've just seen play out in gaza is an indication of what may be to come. what do you mean by that? >> well, the confrontation that we saw was between the palestinians of hamas in gaza and israel, but behind the scenes there was a strong power that was playing a role in some ways subtle and in some ways less subtle. iran is a friend of hamas, even though they have had their problems, but iran has armed insurgent groups. it's armed groups that oppose any kind of negotiated agreement with israel. it has backed them and has cheered them on, and israel expects that if there is a direct confrontation with iran, a direct
clinton praised him for helping broker the deal between hamas and israel and so far, at least the administration issued, the state department, a tepid criticism. how tough should they get with them? directly say pull back, what should our demands an leverage be? >> our leverage is obviously, not only the substantial billions in aid we provide, plus, debt forgiveness and an i. -- an imf deal, but the marshalling world publish opinion is against this kind of move by mr. morsi. we appreciate president morsi's action but it always in the past the united states that brokered the deals and there is a clear perception at least amongst hamas that they won on this one. and, unfortunately, the plo has been, mahmoud abbas and others have been diminished as a result of the negotiations and the settlement reached, and i predict hamas will continue to test the israelis and how far they can go. and, finally, let's trace some of this back to iran. where did the missiles come from that were being fired? iran. where are the iranian revolutionary guard on the ground? syria, the centrifuges conti

. following similar rocket attacks then by hamas, this time around, however, the rules are vastly different. israel's missile defense systems greatly improved, the iron dome successfully intercepting hundreds of in coming rockets, but, israel is facing a better armed hamas, that has the backing of a new islamist government in egypt. this all presenting a serious challenge for both the united states, and the obama administration. and, new obstacles in creating a genuine israeli-palestinian peace process. we'll take all of that up here tonight, with admiral james lyons, retired commander of the u.s. pacific fleet and also, president obama wants more in the $1.5 trillion in tax hikes, but he has no plan -- or announced cuts in spending, why those tax hikes don't add up to anything meaningful an we'll talk with the ceo of cke restaurants, andy puzder and says, tax rates will stifle economic growth and our favorite doctors are here, to psychoanalyze the scandal that brought down the head of the cia. we are delighted to be joined, now, by the admiral james lyons, retired commanr of the u.s. pacif

-fire between israel and hamas, he is now consolidating power. how worry side the administration about it? >> very worried, but they are very, very cautious because he is their new point of leverage really with hamas. he is the future, they thought, of trying to negotiate something and revive the israeli-palestinian talks. and now suddenly he seizes power. he was looking for this opportunity. he is threatened by the judiciary and the other mubarak forces who have, he believes, stopped the constitutional process and stymied that. but for him to do this now, at his point of greatest authority, puts the administration in a bind. and it's unclear how this is going to resolve. >> david brooks, there's a larger strategic question. there's egypt, gaza, syria, iran. there's a president's second term that's got to be dominated by this region. >> i think so. it's the middle east, so there's good news and bad news. the good news is that the obama administration did an excellent job of supporting israel all through this. made israel feel moderate and the arabs feel realistic. the second piece of good
as well. egypt played a critical role this brokering a truce between hamas and israel. hamas looks up to morsi. hamas listens them. even israel, i would argue, recognize the frounld invasion of hamas because egypt is a pivotal player and because the peace treaty was on line. that's why what happens in egypt not only affects egyptians, it affects the neighborhood and egypt relation with the person powers. in particular it affects them in the middle east and rain world. >> right now a 100-constituent assembly is working on drafting a constitution in egypt. liberals and christians walked out. so basically it's being run by islamists now. some have said part of president morsi's calculations would be fears that there would be a challenge to the legal constitution and taking the powers is a way f o short circuiting those. what can we expect to see in the constitution once it's complete? >> i mean this is really very, very important question because you earlier one of your colleagues asked me why did morsi do it. remember, morsi did it -- the reason why he wanted to invest his office was ab
-fire between israel and hamas. doesn't even settle with the truce and then morsi announces this decree essentially a huge power grab. what is the significance? >> reporter: well, suzanne, the significance is until a parliament is formed here in egypt, until a constitution is drafted, he is the most powerful man in egypt, and, technically, he can do whatever he wants without any apparent oversight. that's why he is being called egypt's new dictator. that's why you have thousands of protests taking place behind us in tahrir square. the protesters represent the opposing factions, the liberals, the secularists, women's rights groups, the youth groups. essentially, their position is that we're not going to talk to mr. morsi until he rescinds his decrees, and we spoke to one of his top advisors today, and he said he'll consider that, but first there needs to be a dialogue. let's take a listen to the advisor. >> what kind of concessions are you willing to make? >> this decision is up to the president. not for us. >> is it possible -- is it possible -- >> we are ready for our dialogue. >> are

and hamas are there for indirect talks to work on details beyond the initial cease-fire. i have a list of topics they're expected to cover, opening border crossings, easing israel's economic blockade and what do you expect from these discussions today? what are the chances any progress will be made? >> i think these already tough discussions. all the leverage that comes with having the military action on going is gone now. the pressure to make tough concessions and compromises is diminished and morsi is very distracted biz his own domestic crisis. i think you can have these talks go on for some time without major changes and that sets up the prospect for more conflict in the future. >> during this time if it takes awhile will the cease-fire hold? >> i think right now neither side has interest and i think more israel if iran starts to rearm hamas very quickly and i think they will see that as an untenable situation and it is possible you could over the next weeks see a resumption in some level of fighting. >> michael sing, good to see you. thank you so much. >> he once said he would blo
and hamas. he will be important on issues like iran, on countering terrorism. he now is one of the dominant figures in the middle east. so the administration doesn't want to alienate him but i do think they have to speak truth to power. and there will be criticism both from the united states and many other countries about this worrisome sign of possible return to authoritarianism in egypt. >> glor: nicholas burns, thank you. palestinian authority president abbas spoke to his supporters on the eve of his departure to the united nation where he will argue that plan should be upgraded to an observer state. abbas's predecessor yasser arafat died eight years ago. some still suspect foul play. as allen pizzey reports tonight an extraordinary step will be taken this week trying to resolve doubts once and for all. >> reporter: for many palestinians yasser arafat is more a relic of history than part of the ongoing struggle for an independent state. for a brief period this week, however, he will be thrust back into the limelight. his body will be exhumed on tuesday to find out if he was poisoned by p
